After reading that table salt contained corn to keep it from clunking up or something....I realised that some discomforts I was having often happened after a meal containing table salt....

I switched to Sea salt that I grind myself....Problems disappeared....But I wonder....since sea salt does not contain Iodine...could I, in the long run, developp iodine deprevation related health issues?...

Yes, lack of iodine in sea salt is a mjaor concern for corn allergic people. I use Redmond's Organic Sea Salt with does have a little natural iodine and I also take a little sea kelp or dulce every other day which is high in natural iodine. Foods such as eggs and some vegetables also contain small amounts of iodine.

There are a number of other corn derivatives (other than the dextrose used to stabilize the iodine) that can be used in table salt including citrates, propylene glycol, polysorbate 80, polyoxyethylene, Sorbitan Monooleate), etc. See the following site:

Thanks Eldi... Seems Redmond's Organic Sea Salt is not available in Quebec City....I'll see if one of my grocers is willing to ordre it for me....

I'll look up Sea Kelp with my naturopath.....

Saw your list after posting...

You're right, after taking away allergens and known or possible acidic foods to wich I react greatly if consumed on a regular basis...I'm left with trying:


Dulse ?Don't believe I know what that is...
Garlic (in modertion...I think I starting to react to the fresh one...)
Kelp
Seaweed
Summer squash
Swiss chard
Turnip greens

Not sure about the acidity level of the last two or three....

But thanks for the list!

I've been craving and eating a lot of eggs lately...maybe this was a reason....

Thanks again for you help! Good night Eldi!
